But are kitchens counted as living space wrt to usage regs? The are not when describing the house for sale...
Yes. Sleeping rooms, Living rooms, kitchen, corridors, bathrooms count as living space (and if we are talking about ausnützung, even the stairs count). Depending on the kanton you can have a pantry fo "free", but not the kitchen.

So... would installing a second kitchen in a cellar room run afoul of Nebenraum/Wohnraum rules?
As long as you have 10% of the floor area in window area, a proper electric and ventilation system, it should be no problem - as long as you still have ausnützung to convert cellar to kitchen.
